Ha! I'm the first poster this week! :-)
Another outstanding series, Ginnie - THANK YOU!! I'll bookmark this and use it as a reference for people looking for Dane pups.
And thank you for again recommending Rescue. For the average family who just wants a nice pet, adopting a 2-, 3-, 4- year old (or sometimes older) Dane can be SO much easier than buying that adorable puppy who isn't housetrained yet and chews everything in sight!
Great job! And those pups look awesome - gorgeous heads!

Thanks for all the great photos!! I have a female and a male great dane and the first question everyone asks is, when are you going to have puppies? My answer is always the same. "My female is spayed and the male is soon to be neutered. If I choose to have a third great dane I will purchase one from the same breeder I purchased the first two from". Leave breeding to the pros!!!

Thank you for the educational series to attempt to get people to realize that responsible breeding is much more than just putting 2 Danes together. Although that is one of the most necessary things you have tried to show people that what comes before the breeding & during the pregnancy can be very expensive & the breeder never gets a guarantee that there will be puppies at all. You have shown that once puppies arrive, the work & expenses are not done done yet. A breeder has to get joy out of the whole process & being a little crazy does help. I hope the truth gets to at least a few new, or about to be, Great Dane "parents". Maybe they will also realize that their work is not done either if they want to be sure that he or she becomes the companion they were hoping for. As Peg often tells people, You are getting a blank slate that you now need to teach what you want from them & do it in a way that they will be happy to do whatever you want. Thank you again.

Hi Ginnie,

Thank you for the wonderful series on breeding responsibly, and for reminding people that rescues need love too. Lord knows, they are more than willing to give it back ten fold. Thanks again!

Thank you Ginnie as usual for these articles. It would be worthy I think to remind anyone who is thinking about getting a Great Dane that they can be a handful as puppies and require copius amounts of love, time , patience and energy. They are so worth it but not for everyone.

Thank you Ginnie, this was a wonderful series. I certainly hope it makes a few BYB's rethink the decision to breed.

And I think we should say "Thank You" to those responsible pet owners out there as well.

Since you mentioned all the affection returned to an owner who adopts a rescue dog i was hoping for an update. How is that sweet formerly horribly abused and now much loved mantle bitch doing?

Thanks for the great series, and the mention of rescue dogs. I was given my first Dane, a fawn pup, when I was 14. 30+ years later, I have Number 8. Never in that time have I been without one or two Danes. Of my Danes, only two were pups, and both of them three months when I got them. Two were from show/breeding homes, (including my current brindle male, Walker) and the others were rescue. (I was very involved with my local Humane Society for 15 years, and yes, even 25 years ago we had purebred Danes coming in). Funny, the pup I purchased from a backyard breeder was the ONLY ONE with any health problems! These noble dogs are truly companions for life, and their breeding should never be undertaken lightly. Your series should open some eyes .. I pray it does. Bless you for all you do for Danes and those who love them.

Ginnie- In case you need a translator, the above entry from Jarci says:
"Does a Brazilian site equal to yours exist? Or Ginnie can you send me some photos or materials in portugese? Thanks"

Hi Ginnie,
I am new to your site and it is fabulous! Thank you for all the educational info and of course the adorable pics. I have a rescue Dane named Max. He's my first and has been a joy since the day he came into our family. He was a year when I got him and was eager to please and easy to train. We celebrated his 2nd birthday last week and after a year together I can't imagine life without him. He brings so much joy and love to our lives. I hope your site will encourage others to adopt a rescue dane in need if they have the time and energy to care for one of these incredible animals. The effort you put in comes back in reward tenfold!

Hi, I love your site, very educational. I have been the proud owner of Danes for nearly 20 years, and this year after much soul searching and hard work showing my girl, we decided to take the plunge and breed a pup for ourselves to show on. You are very right about the cost, initial health checks and then stud fees in the UK totalled almost 2,500. Then the worry, we opted for 2 ultrasound scans 1st at day 28 and 2nd 1 week later to unsure they were ok. 3 days ago and a very long labour we were blessed with 8 healthy great dane puppies, mum and babies all doing well. I have found your site very informative, and good to see other countries take breeding and owning these fabulous dogs as seriously as we do over here
